MBA or MS?

The 42-hour MBA degree with an Accounting concentration is designed for students who want to incorporate Accounting education into their graduate business program.

The University of Dallas MS/MBA in Accounting programs are AACSB accredited programs distinctive in the commitment to experiential learning and the development of principled and moral leaders. Students who attend UD learn through both textbook and real world situations. In order to support the teaching and learning experience presented in our program, faculty in each discipline have both business experience and outstanding academic qualifications. Further enriching this environment, many of our students are already "seasoned" business professionals in the workplace and bring their own experiences into the classroom. Learning in this manner better prepares our students for a successful professional career.
